Summer is over and tomorrow is a new Month, new season. Welcome Autumn! How exciting the time fly so fast. Well, I think we made the most of our summer. Spending most of the scorchin hot days on the beach. What an epic 5 consecutive days of 40+ degrees temperature we had. It was an agony actually if we only stayed at home since we don’t have air-conditoned room yet and not even keen of having it lol. Only in the Philippines that I like to have aircon. I’ll share some photos of our summer beach fun times. See you summer!
Would it be possible if you listen to music without interruptions? I think yes! How? With the help of bose noise cancelling headphones I think. Personally, I haven’t tried it but it sounds interesting and somehow convincing. I want to try how it works. I’ve seen the prices online and it’s not cheap. My kids would love to have one too. There are time that you just want to stay in your room, lie on your bed and listen to music, mellow music, soothing music that will relax your senses. According to Martin Luther “Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us” and I agree.
Every morning when I wake up, my kid’s noise is what always welcoming me. Sometimes their arguments and sometimes their screams of excitement on what they’re playing. But my favourite noise to hear from them is when they’re playing keyboards. My kids just love music and they always imitate the songs they’ve heard and played on keyboards. Good thing I just kept the keyboards and let go of the thought of buying the acoustic stringed guitars at guitar center that my husband suggested. I might consider it in the future if they’ll get interested to play guitar again.
When life become too stressful, we often take a backseat and opt out of exercise because we’re feeling too swamped. But according to the research, yoga can reduce stress, anxiety and depression by up to 64 per cent. So next time you go to reach for that third coffee, pull on some yoga clothes like leggings instead and try yoga. It will not only ease your mind but your body too. The best relaxation poses are child pose, eagle pose and corpse pose. That photo above is my example of eagle pose.
Yes I can dance, I can jive, I’m having the time of my life but I’m not the dancing queen. I felt like seventeen when I’m dancing. I have my own moves. Just play the right music; I’m getting in the swing. Oh yeah I can dance swing with my simple moves. I was thinking of going for swing dance lessons before just to get the professional moves but I changed my mind. It’s funny because I came to realized swing is for oldies. Why? Because what I’ve seen is mostly oldies are into ballroom dancing. Well, I’ll get to that point. I know and I will definitely do swing. For now, I’m happy with my basic knowledge of swing dancing.
My family felt privileged to be invited in her golden birthday celebration. It was a fabulous night on the 9th of November. Ballroom dancing was really fun. Awesome presentations dedicated for her from her son and nephews. We did enjoyed the sumptuous variety of food. Her golden birthday celebration was not for personal gain but for a cause. As what I’ve said before, I love attending events that are for a cause. It feels good to help even in simple ways. She never forgets to invite my family in some of her important occasions. We used to be neighbours and we do Zumba together before. She is really fun to be with. Thank you Tita Babes. God Bless you and your family always.
Have you heard about Kendra Scott designer jewelry somewhere? I remember one celebrity mom in the Philippines posted about it just recently. I can’t remember exactly who she was. I saw she posted three pairs of pretty earrings. I actually stumbled to site of this fashionable jewelries that’s why I remember one celebrity that has it. Oh my, I saw this Kendra Scott Kennedy Ring in Emerald Cat’s Eye but it’s Size 6. I’m not sure if it will fit in my finger. I’m size 4. I’ve been wanting to have that kind of ring. I’m still scanning the page at the moment. I realized I had enough of those huge and heavy earrings.
This is my second time attending this annual event hosted by one of the Filipino organizations in Melbourne Victoria Australia. They called it “A night of Fashion and Glamour”. Everyone looks fabulous with their Melbourne Cup outfit. Men and women have to dress up formal and smart. The function proceeds will go to charity in the Philippines and there are many sponsors for the night’s door prizes. I love attending events like this because we’re not only enjoying but we were also able to help. A night of dancing as well and 3 meals course were served that night. I’m thankful for my friend who never fails to invite me since I meet her. The event was an excuse to go out and catch up with my fabulous friends.
Moreover, I was one of the stars of the night. I was recognized as one of the best dress finalist of the night. There were like 20 of us need to do a catwalk out of estimated 500 women. It was embarrassing at first but my friends told me just ride with it and enjoy. Not everyone is chosen. I have the right to say no but hey why I should be choosy when in fact I did my best to look beautiful and fabulous. Recognition is like an award even if I didn’t won in the end. I’m proud that I always get recognize by the way I dress and the way I carry myself. My dress was simple but I know I look elegant and I carried it elegantly. I always get noticed. I’m not bragging about it. I just love it because it helps me more to boost my self-esteem and self-satisfaction. I love being fabulous even in a simple way. This is not the first time I get noticed and I think me already blogged the first time it happened.
Are you curious about my outfit that night? There’s nothing fancy I’m telling you. Very simple but I wasn’t expecting that I was wearing the motif of this year’s Melbourne Cup. Black and White. Out of 20 it came down to 5 and I was still in. I didn’t expect to win the trophy and I really didn’t but it was really fun. I gain my friends support of course. Pictures! Pictures!
I’m not happy with the knobs and pull handles of our cabinets and doors of our new house. I want to change them if given much time. People are just too busy. If I only I could just do it myself why not? I don’t have experienced and ideas on how to start it. I might end up a disaster. My mind is hurrying with so many things actually. I felt like things need to be done right away. I saw at ReidSupply different kinds of industrial handles that made me realized handles are of different shapes and uses too. It’s actually part of our daily living and we can see them in every part of our house. Small but important things like this are not noticeable. Only when they’re broken, out of use or in need of replacement.
How about wearing this pretty sandal? Oh yeah at first sight I was in love with it. I ordered it straight away online because it was on bargain. Spurr brand is not just an ordinary Australian brand. They’re of good quality too. Not minding how high the heels are, I was really excited when my parcel arrived. Oh my gee! I don’t think I can last an hour wearing this? It’s too high and I feel unsafe. It’s been 8 months since I bought this and I couldn’t wear it at all. Now I have another activity approaching and I’m thinking of using it to match with my pink dress. I opened the box again and tried it on. I feel pretty confident. I think it’s time to use it. Oh well, maybe it’s time to use it and feel pretty tall and sexy. Yes! Good luck to me.
